France, home. to good wine, good food and romance and art.
The Jardin des Plantes is a beautiful botanical garden found in Nantes, Western France. There you will find a collection of majestic yet adorable topiary sculptures created by French artist Claude Ponti.
They are titled Poussin endormi (Sleepy Chick) and feature shrubs shaped like huge baby birds that look like they’re right in the middle of a nap.
The piece is a true testament to Ponti’s skill in crafting a topiary. The whole sculpture is evenly textered and the detail is immense.
The green birds even has tiny eyelashes that dot the bird’s closed eyes.
The delightful work showcases Ponti’s great skill in crafting a topiary. He makes evenly textured, rounded forms that are punctuated with metal details like long, thin legs and a bright yellow beak. There are even tiny eyelashes that dot the bird’s closed eyes!
